Latest Edition of Annual Book Provides Comprehensive Overview of the Specialty Pharmacy Arena

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

Industry-leading health business information publisher Atlantic Information Services is pleased to announce the release of Specialty Pharmacy Trends and Strategies: 2014, the latest edition of the annual book that provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of the specialty pharmacy industry. This year’s update includes management strategies and tactics for:

  • Specialty drugs on the exchanges and the ensuing cost and utilization concerns — including details of coinsurance levels by plan, by metal tier
  • Benefit structures and cost-control measures such as formulary development, copay coupon use and site-of-care strategies
  • Specific disease states such as RA, MS, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and more, as well as oncology management — with a review of some specific cancers and tested reimbursement strategies
  • Reimbursement and distribution issues that surround the 340B federal discounted drug pricing program — including conflicts over orphan drug pricing
  • Pricing strategies as drug patents expire and generic pharmaceuticals compete for market share — with an in-depth look at the legal battle over Copaxone’s patents

Specialty Pharmacy Trends and Strategies also covers the business side of the industry with details of merger and acquisition activity; updates on contracting, partnerships and alliances; summaries of organizational and leadership changes; insights into new product launches and branding efforts; updated directory listings of SPPs, home infusion providers, PBMs and pharmacy benefit management vendors; and more.
